Shown thundering down the street recently in a
photo shoot, our newly restored steam engine no doubt, felt right at home!
Serving the City of Reno as Engine # 1 for over 20
years, this powerful fire engine, its dedicated firemen and loyal fire horses
proved to be the right tool to combat the terrible fire that ravaged our early
wooden cities. Known as "Reno # 1" it was built in 1920 by the American Fire
Engine Company of Cinicnnati, Ohio. This 9000 lb. engine could pump 1000
gallons of water per minute and cost the city $5353 when new.
Retired in 1922 from Reno, it served the Southern Pacific Railroad for a short time protecting the Sierra snow sheds. The engines history was lost until 1990, when the Hubert Family found it in a barn in Fallbrook California.
Thanks to the support of the California Sate Firefighters' Association (CSFA), this engine is restored to its original glory. Today, thanks to our sponsors, Reno # 1 travels throughout California in the interest of fire prevention education, and preserving our history and fire service heritage.
